    "I've watched this movie with my wife and we both loved how Fincher depicted the serial killer's personality. It was almost close enouhg to reality! No cheap gimmicks w/ suspenseful sequence. Expect an intense and menacing experience!!!"

    "The Saw movie series is a well known and established franchise in the genre of phsychological and torture horror film. This being the first, it is the best place to start with the franchise and a good recommendation for those who just want a one-off film in the genre to enjoy. It's well regarded and mostly considered a classic."

    "Long Weekend (1978) is one of the best disturbing psychological thriller movies of all time. The movie starts off slow and before you know it, you're sucked into this surreal nightmarish setting full of mystery and mystique. I enjoy this movie so much that I pretty much tell all my friends that they have to watch it at least once."

    "Road Games is one of those unknown psychological thrillers, that leaves you wanting to tell everyone about it. It definitely will remind you of the Hitchcock era. You will be sitting on the edge of your seat for the duration of the movie. The movie itself isn't horrific, but very suspenseful. It's a great movie. "

    "Although it's a good movie and has good ratings, it isn't very popular and I wouldn't suggest it's one of the best of the genre"
